Chris Collins on the David Glenn Show: Duke football was a great inspiration


A couple months after guiding Northwestern basketball to its first NCAA Tournament appearance, Chris Collins joined the David Glenn Show on Monday for #DukeDayDG. With David Glenn out on assignment, Duke football coach David Cutcliffe and assistant director of athletics Art Chase filled in.

Collins mentioned that what Cutcliffe did with Duke’s football program was a source of admiration. He wanted to replicate that at his own workplace.

“A great inspiration for me was what transpired down there with Duke football. I saw what Coach Cut did, and it gave me great inspiration to go to a place like Northwestern on the basketball side, and to do similar things — change the perception of a program.”

Cutcliffe and Collins covered a wide range of topics, including the 2017 NBA Finals, building culture and Doug Collins.
